Labour Minister Chris NgigeHe said seven million jobs have been created so far. According to him, the creation of ‘blue collar’ jobs received a boost because of the economic diversification policy of the government.

Ngige said, “We promised jobs when we came on board, but what has happened is that people tried to quantify jobs in terms of ‘white collar’ jobs for graduates from universities, polytechnic but they don’t want to look at the ‘blue collar’ jobs.

“Agriculture and its chains alone have created more than five to seven million jobs. I am talking in terms of rice from rice tilling, harvesting, sending to the paddies, mills, and even where people are making the jut bags, transportations, people are getting jobs.
